A Modern Minimalist Oceanside Wedding

Lucy and Jim wanted the exotic feel of a destination wedding but the comfort and convenience of a wedding close to home. Alys Beach, Florida served as the perfect middle ground and their stunning modern venue totally delivered. From the invitations by Amanda Day Rose to the custom monogram carried throughout, no detail went untouched and Eb Photography + Artistry captured every last bit.


From the photographer, Elizabeth Bacon… This mid-November destination wedding took place at the stunning Alys Beach, located in the panhandle of Florida on 30A. They were giddy to gather 70 close friends and family members for a wedding weekend celebration no one will soon forget. All of the white, simple, crisp architecture and chic, classic styling plus the stunning and vibrant wedding party made for an excellent combo. Lucy and Jim have impeccable taste and their whole wedding weekend highlighted their intentionality and attention to detail.

From the Bride… Jim and I are high-school sweethearts. We both grew up in Brentwood, Tennessee, a small town right outside of Nashville. Alys Beach, Florida was the perfect choice for our small destination wedding. Jim studied architecture in Rome and I grew up sailing around the Greek Islands. Alys Beach has both Greek and Italian architectural themes but also the coziness of a small town. We wanted the feel of an exotic destination wedding with the comforts and familiarity of home. We held our wedding at the end of November with our closest friends and family who have watched and been a part of our relationship for nearly seven years.
